Book Review: Tamiko and the Two Janitors by Forthright

Tamiko and the Two Janitors
Author: Forthright
Series: Amaranthine Saga Book 3
Publication: Twinkle Press (July 22, 2019)

Description: In doing her part for world peace, she puts one crosser’s whole world at risk. 

Conspiracy theories, werewolf scares, and protest rallies have hampered the peace process in America, where social and political unrest keep most Amaranthine from declaring themselves. Those not in seclusion rely heavily on illusion to mask their true nature.

As the newly appointed principal of a small elementary school, Tamiko Reaverson is doing her part for world peace. She rallies her community’s support and applies for Hisoka Twineshaft’s school revitalization project, which will bring Amaranthine to her hometown. Little does Tami realize that Fletching was founded by one of the oldest and largest urban enclaves in the United States. And two of her staunchest supporters—janitors at her school—share a secret neither wants exposed.

My Thoughts: This story takes place in an America that has not yet embraced peace with their Amaranthine neighbors. Tamiko Reaverson has a plan to do her part for world peace. As an elementary school principal, she convinces a middle school principal, a high school principal, and the head of the local college to apply for a grant which will bring Amaranthine to her town.

Tami doesn't know that the town is filled with Amaranthine already who are living veiled with their illusions. Even the two janitors at her school are hiding their Amaranthine natures. Of course, Tami has a secret past too. In fact, it is so secret that she doesn't even know that her family are descended from Reavers who interact with the Amaranthine.

Tami's twin brother Joe is especially hidden since his very powerful and rare Reaver power has been warded into hiding by someone.

This story had a variety of romances and lots of wonderful detail about the Amaranthine. It also brought us up to date on characters from the first two books in the Amaranthine Saga. I loved the worldbuilding and the many intriguing characters. I also enjoyed the romances.

While not a cliffhanger ending, the ending certainly left room for more stories.

Favorite Quote:
At times, everything about her life seemed to be hurtling toward the unknown yet times like this, the whole world seemed to pause. If it was Ash's doing, maybe it was some kind of Amaranthine magic. As if having a long life didn't diminish the importance of moments. He definitely had a knack for drawing out the potential of each one. He was always singling them out and slowing them down, so they could linger in them together. 
I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
